Strings and blobs

by Hardlec

I seem to be getting a lot of strings between pieces and blobs of filament on what should be flat surfaces. Do I have the plastic too hot? Should I increase my retraction?

My OE motherboard has fried, and I am considering replacing it with another OE motherboard. Several people on other boards have suggested upgrading the motherboard..
Has anyone done this? is this difficult with modest skills?

The joy of a $2 mirror

by Hardlec

I bought a 5 inch diameter mirror and used it for a bed liner. So far this has worked out great.
I bought an official bed liner, but it adhered too well to the printed model and not so we'll to the aluminum plate. End result, the liner was trashed after 12 prints.
I used the mirror as a stopgap, but I am likely to keep it.

Under extrusion, Rough finish and Birtlle prints

by Rulo360

Just got my Delta Mini yesterday, Imported to cura the Mini delta Profile, however I'm still getting some under extrusion or rough finish on my prints... Its my second 3D printer (My Cr-10 works great),, and haven't had this much trouble trying to dial in the printer or G-code settings... Any advice?

Setting up Simplify3D

by johnmg

Hi, new to 3D printing. I have a XYZ Printer Da Vinci 1.0. Hated the bed leveling issues. So I never used it much. I just bought a Monoprice Mini delta. So far I love it. I am printing with Monoprice PETG Filament. I have been learning a lot. My question is this...
I imported the MP mini firmware profile. Was using the default melin firmware. I installed v45 firmware. The steps for the steper motor changed from 1/16thmm to 1/8thmm. So the Mini delta Wiki said to double the values in the firmware. So I tried manually sending a gcode to the printer this corrected the stepper motor issue. But in Simplify3D it got changed back to the default firmware settings. How do I edit the firmware file so I can change these settings? Also the issue with the USB not working. In the section tools/firmware configuration/communication it is set to no flow control. I keep changing this to Hardware flow control and pressing OK. But it only sticks for one print and then I have to change it again.. how do I get these setting to become permanent?

Thank You,
John
